Description

Since its combat introduction by the U.S. Army in 2005, the Combat Application Tourniquet® – a true one-handed tourniquet – has decreased the mortality rate due to extreme exsanguination by 85%. The U.S. Army Institute of Research deemed it to be 100% effective.

Now, C•A•T Resources has developed the all-new C•A•T® GEN7. Following extensive field reviews, the C•A•T® GEN7 has been completely re-designed, making it the most effective Combat Application Tourniquet® to date. The new GEN7 is simpler to use thanks to a single application protocol, single buckle routing system and further improvements to its components and construction.

The Single Routing Buckle is a direct response to in-depth reviews of field and testing reports. Featuring a new single-routing buckle system, the C•A•T® GEN7 allows for simpler and faster application with more efficient slack removal resulting in decreased blood loss with fewer windlass turns.

Despite the proven effectiveness of the Combat Application Tourniquet®, the new C•A•T® GEN7 goes even further toward making it easier and faster to use. All six components of the Combat Application Tourniquet® have been re-designed and improved on the C•A•T® GEN7.
